Tell eBay to stop selling Japanese American artifacts from WWII incarceration camps

Works created out of human suffering are not collectibles. Objects made and saved from World War II Japanese American incarceration should not be priced, tagged and sold to the highest bidder.
But eBay sells and profits from the sale of Japanese American trauma.
This week, a 442 Army medic bag used by a Japanese American soldier was sold. On April 6, at 6:46 p.m., 20 drawings made in 1942 at the Manzanar concentration camp will be auctioned off.
Please help us send an urgent message to eBay: Stop the pending auction of the Manzanar drawings. Stop selling objects born of a racist World War II policy that locked up 120,000 American Japanese — the same ugly racism expressed in today’s anti-Asian violence.
These sales are painful, offensive and disturbing. Let's stop seeing a dollar sign in racial, ethnic and religious pain.
Please tell eBay: Stop selling Japanese American history. Help our nation be better.
